We’re home!

As some of you know, my husband and I were recently in Africa. In June of 2008, I was given the opportunity to travel to Ethiopia and meet and photograph the children of two Kingdom Vision International orphanages. Although my husband and I had always considered adoption as a way of  growing our family, it wasn’t until that trip that we knew for sure that we were called to adopt a child from Ethiopia.  So, after a lengthy homestudy, mountains of paperwork and lots of learning, growing, praying and waiting, on January 11th, 2010, we finally met our daughter, Sara Zubeida Schultz!

We have been home for about a month now, and although the transition to becoming a family of five has had its share of new challenges, overall it has gone beautifully.

Speaking of beautiful… here is my daughter!

Before I post these next photos, I just want to say that the photos below are not just images to me, they are my passion. There is nothing in my work that gives me more life than taking and editing photos like these. This is why I do what I do.

Okay, on to the photos.

Here are some of the beautiful people we encountered on our trip…

And you may remember this photo from 2008:

This is the same boy a year and a half later…


Holiday Hours

22 12 2009

Happy Holidays, everyone! I am so excited to celebrate Christmas this year! Here is my updated Holiday office schedule:

December 23rd-27th: Closed

December 28th-January 1: Open (for calls, emails and viewing sessions–no photo sessions available)

Also, a reminder that Genesis Photography will be CLOSED for the month of January. Click here for more information.

And of course, I can’t post without including some photos!

This is my last senior of the year! Despite the bright sun and the chilly temps, we managed to have a great shoot. You see, Ben is an avid hockey player, and is very familiar with the cold. And although I am sure there is a big difference between working out on a rink with hockey gear on and getting your photos taken, Ben did a great job under the frigid conditions!

Yep, I have babies on the brain.

Okay, so I just HAD to share this adorable clip with you–especially in light of our adoption from Ethiopia. This already is my new favorite movie.

Well, with the Christmas celebrations next week and our upcoming trip to Ethiopia, it has been CRAZY around here. My house is a disaster, my to-do list is a mile long, and the excitement is building! Less than three weeks until we meet our daughter!!! I promised a photo of her, so that you all could see how beautiful she is. This was taken by a friend of ours who recently visited the orphanage. Check our her one tiny little tooth!

Pretty beautiful, huh.

Anyway, I am so behind on my blogging that I am still posting shoots that took place months ago! Sorry about that! Anyway, here are some wonderful fall photos of a wonderful family. They are expecting a new baby in January too!  So exciting!
